Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsOf all the positions which might be viewed as thin on the Pittsburgh Steelers’ 2019 roster, most don’t think about the defensive line. With Cameron Heyward, Stephon Tuitt and Javon Hargrave there to anchor the 3-4 base defensive front, it is easy to forget about the men who are called in to spell them when necessary. This offseason the Steelers re-signed Tyson Alualu to provide veteran depth at the position and re-signed Daniel McCullers to help solidify the nose tackle position, but that was it. Until the 2019 NFL Draft.After letting L.T. Walton try his hand at free agency, the Steelers filled his spot with a sixth round pick from Alabama named Isaiah Buggs. Or as he is called, “Big Pooh”.Buggs joins the team in a position of need, and is hoping to ensure he doesn’t have the same fate as another late round Alabama defensive tackle from the 2018 draft, Joshua Frazier, who failed to make the team and is now retired from football after the AAF folded.Frazier was a 7th round pick Mike Hilton Jersey , and Buggs a 6th round pick, but what is it about Buggs that separates him not only from Frazier, but other picks in the draft? It all starts with his college experience at Alabama.“Just a great coach, a great program,” he said. “Coach [Nick] Saban, you have to buy into his system, do what he tells you to do and you’ll be successful.”With the high number of players leaving Alabama and joining the NFL ranks, the players who play for the Crimson Tide don’t think about the next level.“Out of 100 percent of them, probably 99 percent of them are in the league,” Buggs told Teresa Varley of “Just from Coach Saban Joe Haden Jersey , doing what you’re supposed to do and buying in. It’ll get you where you need to be.“When you get there you don’t think about the NFL. You think about getting better, working each day and the NFL will find you.”Despite his pedigree, Buggs saw the draft as a frustration thinking his name would be called earlier than when it was on Day 3 of the process.“I expected to be called earlier on draft day but things happen for a reason,” he offered during the Steelers’ rookie minicamp. And maybe that reason was to come to Pittsburgh and be a player who provides quality depth at a position of need.In 2018, Buggs registered 52 total tackles, 13.5 for a loss, and a whopping 9.5 sacks. Throw in 3 pass defenses, one fumble recovery and two forced fumbles and it is safe to say Buggs had himself a tremendous Senior season for the Crimson Tide.Throughout his successful senior season, and frustrating draft process, Buggs knows his future will depend on one thing — getting better. “From here on out I just have to continue get better.”If he can continue to improve Vance McDonald Jersey , the Steelers’ defensive front will benefit greatly from another player who can get after the quarterback and stop the run while Heyward, Tuitt and Hargrave need a rest. A report the former Steelers running back was unable to ignore without comment on social media"When former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell was looking for a new team during free agency, his prerequisites were a record breaking contract, anyone but the New York Jets and a team that would show him the love he had failed to receive in Pittsburgh. And while it was clear he had failed with the first two criteria, it was presumed he had at least found a franchise that wanted him.However, if a recent report from Jets beat reporter Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News is to be believed, Bell might not be as welcome in New York as you would expect.With Mehat revealing that the decision to sign Bell was made by the now fired general manager Mike Maccagnan against the wishes of head coach Adam Gase, it would be fair to question how loing Bell will last in New York now that the GM who supported his addition has been shown the door.It is also interesting to note that one of the most notable free agent signings the Jets have made in the last few years has in part resulted in ownership firing the man responsible for the move. Bell hoped to sign the largest deal ever offered to an NFL running back when he rejected the Steelers 5-year $70 million contract in 2018, but ultimately settled for far less with the Jets when they emerged as the only team willing to come close to his contract demands. Had interim GM and current head coach Gase been in full control back then, it seems fair to say that Bell would never have been a Jet at all.Contrary to initial reports Tyson Alualu Jersey , the guarantees attached to Bell’s deal are far less generous than first believed and the running back could easily be released in 2021 with a dead money charge of just $4 million against cap savings of $11.5 million. After years of creating drama in Pittsburgh, it has only taken Bell a few months to become the center of a fresh drama with the Jets, albeit not entirely of his own making. His decision to skip voluntary OTAs was not especially well received in some quarters of the New York media and it can only be wondered how this move sat with ownership in light of the relatively large sum Maccagnan persuaded them to give him a few months ago. In typical fashion, the former Steelers running back was unable to stop himself from commentating on the story circulating about him by Wednesday evening. Taking to social media to initially cry fake news, Bell did his best to convince fans that it did not matter to him if he was liked or not. Those who followed Bell on social media during his six years with the Steelers will know how completely false that last statement is. If truth be told, few Pittsburgh players in recent years have seemed to care so much about how they are perceived by their teammates and the fans than Bell, with the possible exception of Brown.
